TVA has launched a new Web-based system to help business and site selectors identify the best company sites available in the region, officials said.
The aim is to help attract and retain better paying jobs and increase capital investment in the Tennessee Valley, it was stated.
TVAsites.com, a Geographic Information System Web site, is an interactive and customizable site that allows users to search for and find available industrial properties, office buildings and land throughout more than 80,000 square miles of TVA’s seven-state region. Site selectors can retrieve business planning, economic, geographic and site-specific demographic and labor force data, as well as create and print maps with a web-based mapping tool, officials said.
“Business success is often influenced by making decisions based on complete and accurate information,” said TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley. “TVAsites.com puts needed information at the fingertips of decision-makers to help identify optimal company locations in the Tennessee Valley.”
The website, created by GIS Planning Incorporated, is said to be the world’s largest Internet-based GIS economic development site selection analysis program, according to the company.
